Hello Lovely Ladies,
While this may be one of the smallest Cult Nails collection releases (only three bottles), it is one that I have been MOST hyped about for a while!!! As some of you know, I had a chance to ‘test drive/sample’ the Cult Nails wax finish black, now officially named Fetish and part of this trio release. In the few months that I have had it, I kept reaching for it in my manicures. I ADORE this shade to bits: formula wise, longevity of wear wise, and look wise and I was anxiously waiting for it to be available for everyone!!! It is definitely one of ALL-TIME FAVORITE SHADES EVER.
Today I am ‘officially’ swatching Fetish, as well as Tempest and Blaze from the Cult Nails 2nd Anniversary Collection:
(caution, post is SUPER picture heavy)
Cult Nails Tempest is your average white cream polish BUT with a stellar formula. While it may not be a perfect one coater, it applies with ease and dries super quick. Fully opaque in 1 1/2 coats
While I don’t particularly like the full white manicure, I will admit that it is growing on me and I’m not as averse to it as I was before. In addition, white creates a great starting base for applying neon shades, adding colorful accents etc. Having a workable go-to white that is both easy to apply and fast drying is key.
I loooove white with gold accents on the nail, and I really wanted to try out my new gold foils from dollarnailart.com:

I really liked the innocence and purity of Tempest against the super reflective and vibrant gold. I added one last step with a splatter design from Konad m70:

Cult Nails Fetish is not just your regular black polish. It is a WAX finish polish; it dries to a gorgeous, edgy matte black. Unlike layering a matte polish over black (which can create a charcoal grey effect), Fetish remains BLACK, edgy and sexey! NO topcoat required.
I. Cannot. Get. Enough!
(two thin coats)
Wear it on its own, it creates a super chic vampy look. I decided to add a a white accent nail using Cult Nails Tempest for a super easy and trendy look:
And while Fetish screams edgy and leathery, it CAN also be worn as an elegant look (I added a couple of BornPrettyStore pearls)

Cult Nails Blaze is a mixture of gold and copper glitter. It can be layered over other shades (as it has a clear jelly base) or worn on its own. I used three coats for full opacity.
I have to say that Cult Nails always manages to add class and a level of sophistication to their shades. Blaze is a super glittery concoction (without the presence of holo glitter).
While I love me some holo glitter, I was happy to see a holo-free but ultra sparkly glitter polish
I added some Cult Nails copper rhinestones as well as a Fetish accent nail for my final look:
